  • Fire district, metro district, schools rail against ballot measures

    If the proposed Proposition 101 passes on Election Day, Evergreen Fire/Rescue can expect to lose all the income it currently gets from taxes on motor vehicles, which equaled $350,000 in 2010.

    In addition, 911 fees would be frozen at 2009 levels, according to Fire Chief Garry DeJong. 

    DeJong spoke at a forum Oct. 27 at the Evergreen Fire Administration Building in front of a small group of people mostly involved in special-district administration.

  • Ambrosier’s exhibit weaves threads of his life

    Hearing pastel artist Roger Ambrosier describe his work gives the pieces a second life. Although Ambrosier’s meditative landscapes evoke deep emotion without explanation, the paintings truly come alive when the artist reveals the inspiration behind each work. “Threads of Time,” Ambrosier’s one-man show at the Center/Stage Rotary Gallery in Evergreen, provides visitors with unique insight into an artist who spends as much time crafting the perfect scene in his heart as he does doing it justice on paper.

  • Brits show the way on spending

    Last week, a coalition government in the United Kingdom made its long-anticipated announcement about $128 billion in government spending cuts. It’s aggressive and audacious — and certainly more ambitious than anything being done on this side of the pond.

  • Mild fall brings out winged, four-legged creatures

    This has been a beautiful fall so far, with warm sunny days and blue skies.

    I am now getting physical therapy on my wrist and have enjoyed the warm, gold days as much as possible.

    I get outdoors for a bit most days to enjoy the fall weather while I can. Locally, some of the aspen are still green but other ones are in full color. From what I have seen on the TV news, many of the leaves have already been blown off in the high country.
